This great resource will help you along the way, during or after you listen to the podcast. Not only will you get to know our guest, you will be asked tough questions to really spearhead your journey to becoming a better leader! And look below for more insights and clips!!
What traits do you admire in leaders?
You have to lead by example. You can’t just preach about what people need to do, you have to show them. If you look to your boss or leader and they are practicing what they preach, it is more authentic, so that’s a big thing. With leadership, you don’t want to lead by fear, you want to make the people you are leading feel a part of things. You don’t want a separation between people and a leader. Make it feel like one big team and make everyone feel valued.
Would people who work with you describe you as someone who leads by example or someone who says, “Do what I say, not what I do?”
What is one action you can take this week to lead by example and show others you value them?
I see that authenticity is really important to you – you are the real deal.
I try to be me, not somebody else. Once I became 100% comfortable in my own skin, if not everyone likes me, that’s ok as long as I stay true to myself, the values I believe in and be authentic.
What fears keep you from staying true to yourself?
